What is your competitive drive?

My view of competition is the same as when people would watch me be a little combative to Citrix, which is, ‘Competition is good.’ It makes us better. If it wasn't for the Citrix-VMware competition in end-user computing, we wouldn't have a better Workspace ONE product today. If it wasn't for the VMware-Nutanix competition, we wouldn't have a better VSAN and VxRail today. We just need to focus on the customer. Occasionally, you'll see me a bit combative, it's not a regular thing, but that's OK. We are pleasing and satisfying our customers—whether they've picked us or Nutanix, or whether they picked us or Citrix, or us or Red Hat—there's multiple competitors we face here, but in some cases they're best of breed in a particular area so we will make sure we support them.
